why a pcl file is printed duplex?

Hello all?

Can somebody help me?
I have a pcl file received from one of our parteners. The problem is that when I try to print this file on IBM 2105 printer(using the printer browser), the file is printed duplex. I have verified if there is a command sequence for simplex in the pcl file and there is not! But also there is not a sequence command for duplex.

Is it possible the missing of simplex sequence command to be the cause of duplex printig?

A lot of thanks!

RE: why a pcl file is printed duplex?

If the file does not contain an explicit sequence to set Simplex or Duplex printing, then your output will almost certainly be influenced by the power-on default settings (as set via the printer front panel (assuming it has one)) which provide 'job-level' defaults.
